Thanks are due to West Berkshire Council, parish councils, the Greenham Trust, the Englefield Trust, other charities and donors for their support in keeping the Carebus service going.
Their input, along with the modest mileages charges from users, are sufficient to meet the majority of Carebus costs because all drivers and administrative staff are volunteers.
If you would like to help by making a donation, however modest, it would be greatly welcomed. There are three ways to do so:
i) By direct donation
ii) by participating in the West Berkshire Lottery which gives the possibility of winning up to £25,000 at the same time as supporting Carebus.
iii) by buying online from 7,000 major brands like eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S – these firms will make a donation to Carebus, at absolutely no cost to you.
More details on each method of supporting Carebus are shown here::
